2023 Goals:

Strategic imperatives: 1) grow a symbiotic relationship with the community in order to provide a coordinated response/pre-emptive strike to social problems; 2) even the playing field for all individuals; enhance grassroots impact across the state ­— in homes, schools, prisons, hospitals, courts and neighborhoods — to provide an array of low-barrier, high-quality, life-changing services; 3) recruit/retain staff who are tops in their fields, provide continuing education and advancement, and build a culture of respect; 4) advocate at the legislative level to reshape public policies toward the best interests of children and vulnerable populations; and 5) increase unrestricted funding and improve long-range sustainability.
